History

Since 1991 Todd operated his business on a traditional commission basis. In response to the changing needs of the local real estate market he transitioned to a commission rebate model in 2006 when he and his wife Inna established Menlo Atherton Realty based in Atherton.

Below are two of the market changes brought about by the internet and the widespread dissemination of MLS data which provided the impetus for Todd’s new Real Estate commission model based on offering a home buyer commission rebate of 1-1.5% of the purchase price of the home:

1.    Agents are no longer the “gatekeepers” of MLS data which has resulted in much less buyer-agent contact. This means agents who have effectively integrated the latest technologies can handle a greater number of clients while still providing a high level of customer service at the critical junctures of the search-buy process.

2.    With buyers now in control of the data they no longer wish to have agents drive them around to look at homes.

Menlo Atherton Realty is now a team of five comprised of Todd, his wife Inna, Grace is the transaction and listing coordinator, Chitra handles web marketing and Caroll takes care of the web site.

Todd and Inna are very responsive in driving the buying process for the second time. I would and have recommended them to my friends.

I had a business client, James, who I knew to be successful in commercial real estate. So when my wife and I were ready to buy a house, I called James for a residential real estate agent and he told to call Todd Beardsley. Todd and Inna Beardsley were instrumental in helping my wife and I navigate my first real estate transaction -- at below the asking price of $1.3 million. Todd educated us while keeping everything as simple as possible. He always returned our calls or emails immediately. He and his wife Inna used effective online tools so that we could move quickly with the back and forth of negotiations between buyer and seller. In fact, Todd recommended that we upgrade from our banker to that banker's boss, which made the difference in our loan closing on time. In short, Todd provides you with a discount broker price for what we considered full service. Thank you, Todd and Inna Beardsley.

Please consider Todd to represent you as we had an extremely positive experience. We had originally opted to purchase our future home with a veteran agent from Coldwell Banker. We were quickly discouraged because it was soon made clear that she had her best interests in mind and not ours. We found Todd as he was representing a seller at a property of interest in Menlo Park. We were impressed with his knowledge and soon started working with him for our home searches. We did a lot of research on-line and identified a few properties of interest. We really appreciated Todd's time that he put into each potential home - meeting us at a few properties, writing up an offer and our obtaining a great deal with absolutely no pressure. Todd is upbeat & worked much harder than that "veteran" pushy Coldwell Banker agent. Now, just over 1 year later our home price has surged by ~$250k!! On top of all of that, we were able to obtain 2% back from the seller at closing. If you are in the market to buy or sell, I'd strongly encourage you to contact Todd.

Todd helped us buy our house in Menlo Park while we were living in Washington DC. He went above and beyond what any realtor we have ever worked had done. He made the process enjoyable. If we ever move back to the area again we will definitely use Todd.

We had such a great experience purchasing our first home with Todd and Inna. They were available at all times and provided well thought out answers to our endless questions. Todd's analysis of the properties we were interested in was extremely useful and helped us eliminate or proceed with certain homes. Todd and Inna gave us practical advice and never pressured us to put in an offer or to close a deal. When we did go ahead with an offer, Todd's expertise and skillful negotiation got us the house. They offered an exceptional level of service and were such a pleasure or work with throughout the entire process.

I have purchased homes three times and Todd and Inna were instrumental in helping me purchase in a very competitive market at Palo Alto and Los Altos Hills. Todd is an excellent negotiator. They are very responsive and helped me in getting the home repaired and ready for a move in. They are very tech savvy and can run the whole process online. They spent a lot of time with my lender to get the loan approved as the lender kept coming back for more paperwork including minutiae on the paperwork. I highly recommend Todd for your next purchase.

Really great service and great people. We have recently purchased our first home. Inna, Natalya and Todd were really helpful on all steps of the process. You can have more answers and more advise than you usually expect. Good communication, proactive on all stages. Expect expertise in all areas including legal.

We hired Todd and his partner/wife Inna to assist us with purchasing a home in 2008 and again in 2013 to purchase a home and also sell a rental investment. I cannot say enough good things about them. With the market as hot as it is and tons of deals going through their office, you would never know it when interacting with Inna or Todd on a daily basis. They somehow are able to treat every client like s/he is their only client (and don't look for kudos for doing it). They respond to emails and calls day and night. They handle every transaction with the same sense of urgency and care that the client feels in what is often a stressful and emotional process. At the same time, they are able to maintain a calm and reassuring demeanor. Todd's negotiating skills are second to none. He is tough and unrelenting. Inna is very detail oriented and keeps clients in the loop with nearly daily updates. And don't let her looks fool you - she is equally as tough. All in all, we have been 110% satisfied. We will look to Todd & Inna for all of our future real estate needs and would not hesitate in recommending them to family, friends and colleagues.

We bought our Mountain View home with Menlo Atherton Realty. When I came to the bay area I was shocked how real estate business was done. I realize that having knowledgeable brokers was important yet was there away I could save money? Then I found Todd and Inna. At first, I wondered whether it was too good to be true. After we found a home and won the bit, we knew it was the right decision to use Menlo Atherton Realty. Since then we have shared their names with our friends. As it turned out, we didn't mind doing some of the upfront work - we were doing it anyways with full service brokers. We needed guidance and someone to discusses remodels and fixer uppers vs updated homes. We needed guidance on what types of homes would work with families with approaching teenagers. Because they have been in the industry for years, they have all sorts of references relating to homes. I wanted to emphasize that Todd and Inna knew how to work in this industry. They prepared us, so that we would be able to make a solid offer with competitive bids. I look forward to using them during our next real estate transaction(s).

Very highly recommended. My wife and I recently purchased a house in Palo Alto and we could not be happier with the service we received from Todd and Inna at Menlo Atherton Realty. My wife and I were drawn to Menlo Atherton Realty for their industry-best buyer rebate (they take a 1% commission and rebate the remainder). Like a lot of buyers these days, we preferred to do most of our research ourselves, using Redfin and MLS listings to find properties online and going to open houses ourselves on weekends. Todd is able to offer such a large rebate by keeping his handholding to a minimum in the early stages of the house hunt — he can arrange showings for you if necessary (Inna showed us one house after hours), but he will not be burning hours taking you from house to house browsing. I initially viewed this as a simple value proposition: In exchange for doing legwork that we were planning to do ourselves anyway, we get a larger rebate and save money. However, after running through the full buying cycle, I discovered a much more significant effect of Menlo Atherton’s business model: Because he runs a high volume business and doesn’t waste time parading buyers from property to property, Todd spends most of his time engaged in the activities that are most valuable to us as buyers: the art of deal making around the contract negotiations and close. This has had the effect giving Todd an edge over his competition in precisely the area that is most critical. We engaged seriously in a few houses before settling on our current one. In each case, events proved Todd’s professional instincts to be correct: when he said a selling agent was likely bluffing and we should wait, he proved correct. His command of multiple bid situations also proved to be accurate, and he got us through a complicated escrow process with minimal disruptions. The other positive side effect of the Menlo Atherton business model is that with higher volume than typical realtors, Todd and Inna are not inclined to push for a quick sale — they want to get their clients into the right house at the right price and build a base of lifetime clients and referrers. There were a couple of properties that we really liked that Todd effectively talked us out of for various reasons (school, cross-traffic, difficulty of resale, etc.). Realtors that I’ve worked with in the past would have been quick to seize on any interest and close a quick deal. Throughout the process, Todd and Inna were both very responsive, returning emails very quickly and answering or returning calls promptly. I highly recommend Menlo Atherton Realty.

I bought a house in Palo Alto with Menlo Atherton Realty and highly recommend them. Todd and Inna are both very professional, knowledgeable, and accessible. We got into a rather complicated negotiation and Todd handled it perfectly and ended up securing a great price for us. He has a very large depth of experience so he knows all of the ins and outs of real estate, and his feel for the art of the deal proved dead on accurate: he sniffed out a bluff by the listing agent more than once. The commission rebate that Menlo Atherton Realty offers is the industry best, and when you add that to the negotiating savvy that Todd brings to the table, you’re likely to end up with a significant chunk of extra cash when the deal is done.

Menlo Atherton Realty helped us purchase a townhouse in Mountain View, where we competed against a lot of well-qualified buyers. Todd and Inna have figured out how to process real estate deals through secure web tools. They did a great job of setting things up so that I could read and sign documents online. Not only were they less expensive than other agents, but also they saved me a lot of time. We had to make offers on four houses before we got an acceptance. It was tough, but because we were working efficiently we were able to stay in the game and compete effectively. Hats off to Todd and Inna. Thanks to their skills we are living in a nice place that we like very much.

I wanted to work with an agent that gives a commission rebate. Most are either not giving you enough rebate, especially for the level of services you’re getting (e.g. Redfin, in my opinion, which doesn’t give you agents as knowledgeable as Todd), and some may return an even bigger commission, but are neither local nor knowledgeable. I thought local/knowledgeable wouldn’t matter as much, but my home purchase ended up being complex because there were tenants in the property, and because my loan was delayed due to less-than-competent loan people. Todd was very good at handling both. I don’t really feel I got any less service from Todd than I would with a full-service broker. Maybe if I wanted him to accompany me to open houses and drive me through neighborhoods, I would have felt I got less. But come on – this is Silicon, and most people who buy here are smart and rational. This is not 1987, so you can do a bunch of research yourself (find comparables, info on neighborhoods and schools, previous sales, etc.). If you want to pay 1.5% of your house value for these extra services (and you DO pay for them, regardless of the ‘seller pays’ fallacy) then maybe it’s worth it. For most of us who don’t dislike money, Todd is the best agent I can think of. Finally, Todd was extremely responsive with email and phone, and also very personable and fun. Seriously, if your transaction is traumatic, like mine was (through no fault of Todd’s), this matters. I recommend Todd very highly for anyone who wants to buy a home in Silicon Valley and wants a commission rebate.

We had a extremely good home-buying experience with Todd & Inna. His great expertise in dealing with the bank agents, loan agents etc helped us finally get the home of our dreams- there were many times along the way we thought we won’t get it, but he patiently kept pursing it. All along the process he constantly guided us & was always available- even late in the night sometimes. I really like his calm, no-pressure style of working with his clients. He goes out of the way to help his clients. Inna was kind enough to even help us pick out some great colors for the walls. We recommend him to all our friends & would definitely go back to him again to buy our next home.

We bought our first home with Menlo Atherton Realty and the experience was exactly as advertised. The service is to the point. Offers get done quickly using the latest technology such as eletronic signing. The service also includes solid real estate knowledge and invaluable local knowledge; the real estate market in the bay area is unique and, therefore, requires unique knowledge that people from Menlo Atherton Realty mastered. The art of making offers in a competitive market. The rebate they offer is also very strong and makes you feel like you are paying only for what you really need.

I came to Todd and Menlo Atherton Realty when it came to buying our condo in San Francisco. We ended up finding a short sale that we loved and Todd was able to execute on multiple levels. First of all, Todd is a great communicator. He texts, emails, calls, uses e-contracts – whatever it takes to get the job done easily and efficiently in the least amount of time. Secondly, Todd is very thorough – constantly double checking and going above and beyond to get us the best deal possible. Todd was able to negotiate down the sales price an additional 15k for us which was just an added bonus. Third of all, Todd is very knowledgeable about the real estate industry. Even though Todd doesn’t live in SF or even do that many SF sales, he answered all of my questions with confidence and honesty. He helped us a lot with understanding how the short sale process works, what to expect from the bank, the timing of how it will all play out, etc. Bottom line, definitely go to Menlo Atherton Realty if you want to make the right real estate choices and work with a company that is honest, efficient, and works for you.

Todd, I wanted to sincerely thank you and for the fantastic job you did helping us acquire our new home in San Mateo. You are one of the most attentive, hard working people I have EVER had the pleasure to work with. Literally hundreds of phone calls and emails, and you were ALWAYS there for us to answer questions (even on holidays and late at night!). Buying a home can be a very stressful situation, but you always said the right things. You always had the knowledge to put our minds at ease. You were always extremely patient with us. You educated us throughout this process. You and Inna make a fantastic team! You guys closed the deal for us and we are thrilled!! The crazy part is we would never have been able to afford the house we did without your commission rebate and that is the icing on the cake! We will be recommending you to everyone we know in the bay area. We really cannot say enough to thank you both so much!

Todd and Inna helped us purchase our home in Los Altos in 2011. We were attracted at first by the rebate. They are the perfect option in my opinion if you are a savvy buyer who knows how to leverage online searches. However I also really valued the fact that even though Todd only got 1% commission, we did not in anyway feel like we didn't get enough attention. We made two offers. The first one we made a really low offer and Todd offered his honest opinion that it was not the best investment but it was a good one. For our second offer it was a more desireable investment (ranch style house in a culdesac, great schools, walkable to schools, convenient access to fwy) and there were multiple offers. With Todd's advice, we were able to secure the house below listing price and also we got the house even though we were not the highest priced offer on the table. To this day I firmly believe we would not have gotten our beautiful home without Todd's help. Also the price of our neighborhood has increased and we would probably not have been able to afford it if we had waited a couple years. All in all, Todd and Inna were always on time, very courteous, and extremely professional. We never felt rushed or felt like they were not prepared. In addition, they were great with getting things done electronically since both my husband and I were working fulltime jobs with long hours. We loved being able to finalize documents using esignatures online.

We had a great experience working with Todd and Inna for the sale of our home. Being a mother with 2 young kids and a full time job, I initially thought that I needed a full service agent. After meeting with Todd and Inna, I was convinced that even though they consider themselves as discount brokers, nothing about their work, dedication, and level of service is discounted. Todd and Inna had great connections and made it very easy to find all the services we needed to prepare our home for sale. I worked with Inna's design and home staging company and she completely transformed our home to a "model home" and actually, momentarily gave us doubts about why we are selling at all! Their level of teamwork and efficiency is worthy to note. From the time we moved out, our home was staged and ready for MLS publication within one week. That is a testament to the great planning and execution this team brought to the table. Todd's knowledge of the market, negotiation skills, and ability to price our home just right made the sale of our home easy and as stress free as selling a home could be. After the sale, we continued to keep in touch to ensure that all the paperwork went smoothly (use of docusign was a great time saver).

We have been renting on the peninsula for over 10 years and were finally ready to buy - and we are so glad we chose Todd and Inna as our realtors! We were buying in a very competitive market and needed people who knew what they were doing to win the bid but we didn't need anyone to hold our hands. Since we knew exactly what we wanted, we felt confident going to open houses on our own. In this age of the internet with MLS and other sites that let you know what houses are available, I really appreciated having the option of saving a huge chunk of money on realtors' commissions by signing with Todd and Inna since they do not come to the open houses but are basically available for everything else. Both Todd and Inna were easily accessible and great at answering all of our questions and giving us sound advice on what to expect and playing the odds to win the house while staying in our budget. I have recommended them to everyone I know and would not hesitate to work with them again! Thank you Todd and Inna - we love our house!!!

I strongly recommend Todd and Menlo Atherton Realty. I hired them to purchase my first home in the Silicon Valley area in 2011. They were very professional and patiently walked me through each step of the home-buying process and answered all my questions. Todd knows EXACTLY what he's doing. Every page of every contract and form was clear to him, and every aspect of home ownership was considered on our behalf as if he were the one buying the house. While all real estate agents pledge to act in the best interest of their clients, Todd truly does so. In the one month that it took for escrow to close, we felt continually supported. There were never a sense of "Oh, their deal is going to close soon anyway, and they're not going to back out, so let me go pay attention to other clients instead." Being detailed-oriented, we must have asked Todd lots of questions, each of which was patiently and thoroughly answered. When he wasn't absolutely certain of the answer, he made sure to find out. We have also received a rebate from him and saved a lot of money in the transaction. Todd is a rare find in the real estate business. He will definitely be our first call the next time we have a real estate transaction!

I highly recommend Menlo Atherton Realty/Todd. Thank you Todd for helping us purchase our Los Altos home, in 2007. This was not our first home purchase, so we really hunted for a competent, honest agent that understood the real estate market and could represent us and negotiate the deal. I applaud Todd for his 1% commission while many other brokers bristle at the thought. Todd is very confident in his ability to close a deal on behalf of his client and rightfully so. I also appreciate that Todd is a email/phone call away for our other real estate questions, thanks for keeping in touch all these years!

We recently purchased our first home and couldn't have been happier with the experience. Knowing that we would be doing a lot of legwork ourselves (researching online and attending open houses) we chose Todd and Inna based on their commission rebate program. When we started working with them, I didn't expect them to handhold us since they only keep 1% commission. I was very pleasantly surprised though, as both Todd and Inna were available to us at all hours of the day. They responded to emails almost instantaneously and provided answers to our never-ending list of questions that ranged from steps in the home buying process to the escrow period. Another thing that we loved about them is the fact that they are all digital. The vast majority of communication was done through email. More importantly though, is the fact that they use docusign to gather electronic signatures. I was out of town when we put our offer in, so this would have been impossible with a traditional agent that still requires physical signatures. Todd showed great expertise in the bidding process. We had already lost out on another home (for which he had indicated that he thought our offer was too low), so we listened to his advice more the second time around. It was a multiple offer, multiple counter situation, and Todd's insight and advice for next steps really worked. Additionally, he mentioned that he had worked with the other agent before, so I suspect that his strong network and relationship with the agent helped us win the bidding war. Inna was remarkably organized and always went out of her way to accommodate our schedules. She met up with us for a final walkthrough of our property on Labor Day weekend! I thought she would rush right through the inspection since it was a holiday, but she really took the time to walk through with us, and even provided some design feedback and ideas. Even though that was the last "official" thing we had to do with our house, she has still been in contact with us, providing recommendations on stores and contacts to use during our home remodel. Both Todd and Inna were an absolute pleasure to work with. Their responsiveness and expertise throughout our home buying process was great, and I couldn't imagine going through this process without them.

I highly recommend Todd and Menlo Atherton Realty. My wife and I used him to purchase our first home in Menlo Park in the summer of 2009, and his service level, responsiveness, integrity, knowledge of the market, and ability to negotiate and navigate the closing were second to none. Todd walked circles around the seller's agent when negotiating the final contract and saved us tens of thousands of dollars (in addition to the great price he helped us negotiate). If you have already identified the home you want to purchase, it would be foolish not to use Todd even if he did not offer a commission rebate to the buyer. We dealt with many full service agents before using Todd and he was the by far the best.

My husband and I worked with Todd to purchase our first home in Menlo Park. Todd helped us through an extensive search for the perfect home and provided tons of data to ensure a smart investment. Additionally, Todd and Ina provided us an incredible level of service. They are both extremely capable, proactive and intelligent. Todd will respond to any question you have immediately and is always available to help his clients. We appreciated his insight into the market in general along with his expertise of our neighborhood. Above all, Todd has incredible integrity and honesty. Todd never tried to close a deal or push any property. He runs his business for long term success which means helping his clients make the best decision for their family. My husband and I met at least 20 other brokers / agents before choosing Menlo Atherton Realty. We were thrilled with the experience and will only use them in the future! We have recommended Menlo Atherton Realty to many family members and close friends.

Todd and Inna are a very professional, efficient and results-oriented husband and wife team. Todd is dynamic and energetic, and Inna is very sweet and detail oriented, she takes care of all the paperwork. I loved working with them to buy my Palo Alto home, as they work seamlessly together to cover all aspects of the process and the actual transaction. They give the extra mile to get the work done, for example, one day that I was caught up in back to back meetings, Inna met me at a convenient location for me on the road to sign some documents. Todd was instrumental in helping me and my sons be the winning offer in the very competitive Palo Alto market, among 18 other offers (yes, 18!), even though there were several bidders that were very close to us and one even higher. The day Todd presented our offer was very long and nerve wrecking (as we had almost the last turn after 18 other people), but Todd's reassurance and confidence helped me stay focused all the way until the final negotiations. But their help didn't stop there, they helped me and my boys transition into the new place, and gave me great recommendations of professional and tradespeople that I needed at that time. Overall, I felt that Inna and Todd always had my best interest in mind, and gave me honest and valuable feedback about the properties that I was considering. Even though my experience with Menlo Realty is in the buying process, I will not hesitate to use their services again when the selling time comes.
